US press: Russia used spy network in Bulgaria to spy on NATO and CIA

123

Russian scouts use developments made during the Cold War. This conclusion was reached in Bulgaria, having exposed agents who were trying to "steal" secret documents from the CIA, the European Union and the North Atlantic Alliance.


Georgy Kanchev talks about this in an article published by the American newspaper Wall Street Journal.

The US press described how Russia used the "spy network" in Bulgaria to spy on NATO and the CIA. In particular, the article mentions that the Bulgarian special services filmed a high-ranking civil servant from the Ministry of Defense photographing secret documents about American F-16 fighters from a computer monitor in order to pass them on to the Russians. Exactly what documents about the F-16 are still classified are not reported. Unless, about how much money in the United States was "laundered" on this program, which continues to be promoted among a number of foreign countries ...

They also, according to the author, managed to intercept the conversation of the recruited official with his supervisor, where he praises him for the work done and valuable materials.

Many similar materials were presented, after which Bulgaria officially announced the disclosure of the "Russian spy network", and then expelled several Russian diplomats.

The Russians are ardent advocates of undercover intelligence, and, frankly, this is their forte.

- said the British expert on the special services of the Russian Federation Mark Galeotti from the Royal Institute for Defense Research, commenting on this event.

I have rarely seen such a large amount of evidence, and yet we have shown only a small part of them so far.

- Bulgarian Prosecutor General Ivan Geshev said with surprise.

If you compare these two statements, you will notice that they contradict each other. After all, if the Russians are such specialists in agent intelligence, then why did they act so unprofessionally, leaving so much evidence? This raises serious doubts that all the evidence collected by the Bulgarian special services is really genuine, and not just another anti-Russian fake aimed at introducing new sanctions and destroying the partnership between Moscow and Sofia.

    Well, NATO is okay, since Bulgaria is a member of it, but the CIA, what is it doing there? Spying on Russia?

          In fact, this is a fact! Look for info on "Tsarichina Dupka" case! The search was carried out by the Bulgarian military, but for some reason at one point they became interested in the United States and, at their insistence, the tunnels were concreted, and the documents were taken away! It was in the 90s. Mystery remained mystery!





          According to another, an anomalous incident that occurred during the time of socialism was not without the intervention of the Soviet special services.
          In the area called the Valley of the Thracian Kings, in the 50s of the Bulg. archaeologists have begun to uncover. They found a lot of interesting things, they were often sent for examination to the USSR, and then suddenly ... a dispatch came from the USSR - to reinstall the digging sites, to flood the place! Funding for the construction of the reservoir was taken over by the USSR, the artifacts were not returned. What they found there and were afraid that they would find something else is still unclear! The Koprinka reservoir is now the place where the Bulgarian Russophiles hold their annual cathedrals. The picture shows where the capital of the Odris kingdom was.

        It's funny what the Ross were up to. diplomats who expelled the previous time! lol They bought personal data of Bulgarian citizens from the ESGRAON civil registration system, bribing ministers. This is a restricted access system. Why did they need it? As it turned out, they were looking specifically for one specific group of deceased persons. Then they made fake personal documents in their name, and supplied them with their agents. In short, we used the problems in ESGRAON, for unregulated purposes.
        By the way, Western intelligence services are quite actively using the same medot, buying buzz data of Russian citizens. Then they tracked down the faces they needed. Belinket - and with this everything is said ... yes Corruption is ubiquitous, it is not difficult to buy anything, cheaper, while ... bully

      But over the past 20 years, the level of Russian intelligence services has dropped below the floor. Despite the fact that the head of the Russian Federation has been standing for many years as a scout ... lol
      There were failures so epic that it became impossible for the Bulgarian authorities to pretend that they did not notice anything ...

      In short, you can’t reproach the counterintelligence officers for shouting a spy! The spy is to blame! It was not necessary to light up! bully

        If the Bulgarian special services fulfill the order of their American superiors, this does not mean that everything they report is true. The fact that your officers themselves could be corrupt, you certainly exclude, as well as the fact that they could not work for Russian intelligence.
        But it seems that your special services have learned to play noodles on their ears - apparently the case with Skripal does not allow them to sleep peacefully, so they want to curry favor with the Americans, dragging Russian intelligence everywhere and wishing to worsen relations with our country.
        In particular, the article mentions that the Bulgarian special services filmed a high-ranking civil servant from the Ministry of Defense photographing secret documents about American F-16 fighters from a computer monitor in order to pass them on to the Russians.

                  When there is evidence, it is presented and punished.

                  This is exactly how it is with us. Evidence in court, the punishment will be consistent. yes

                  It is not true! Inflate and how! Almost all Russian TV channels are received without any problems, we know what they show.


                  In Runet, literally hundreds of thousands, if not millions of publications, on spy topics.
                  Those that are useful work better! And yours are not revealed, probably because they are simply harmless with you.

                  I do not know how it is with ours, but yours are constantly lit up in one country, that in another. They have completely lost their shame, and they are offended at the fact that they are being revealed! lol

                    So what? Have you sent diplomats? Have you made a note of protest? Turned to the CSTO to condemn the intrigues of Ukraine?
                    No. They just caught, presented PROOF, NOT EVIDENCE, and ... oh Gd, sued! lol

                    Unlike Bulgaria, this is not an international scandal. You, according to your own statement, perceive Russia as an enemy. Do not be surprised that your nerves will strain a little in response.

                      With Ukraine, Russia’s relationship is not so good ... neither peace, nor war. If diplomats are sent out for every spy caught, diplomats will soon be closed. lol
                      Turned to the CSTO to condemn the intrigues of Ukraine?

                      Bulgaria did not apply to any international institutions.
                      They just caught, presented PROOF, NOT EVIDENCE, and ... oh Gd, sued!

                      During the investigation, the prosecutor talked about evidence, but evidence collected a huge amount. The evidence will be presented to the court. You can be sure - the guilty will be convicted according to the law.
                      Unlike Bulgaria, this is not an international scandal. You, according to your own statement, perceive Russia as an enemy. Do not be surprised that your nerves will strain a little in response.

                      You obviously do not follow this topic. Expulsion of diplomats when disclosing spy scandals is a normal practice. Russia also applies it, at least in the last 2-3 years, by and large in response. 2020 turned out to be a record one in terms of disclosed Ross. spies in Europe. There was a whole series in the Balkans - Greece, Cerna Gora, Macedonia, even in Serbia there was such an incident that put the Serbian authorities in a very uncomfortable position.
                      As for the hype, it can be different. Often the states do not give publicity, so as not to spoil relations. Bulgaria did the same before. But this is not always possible. There are cases so frantic that there is no way to keep silent about them.
                      Specifically about the current case, there is another factor! Parliamentary elections are held on April 4. If the government and the prosecutor's office did not react, they would have become objectionable to sharp criticism from the opposition. By the way, the reaction of the Bulgarian authorities was very moderate. They announced persona non gratta, only 2 Ross. diplomat. One of them has contracted the corona virus and remains in the country until retired. And it was expected that to expel 3-4. The next day, Premier Borisov met with Ross. Ambassador Ms Mitrofanova and assured her that Bulgaria does not want aggravation of the problems and will not accept other restrictions. Everything will be fine. hi

    We have elections on April 4 .... pre-election showdown, in front of the population. And the next day the population came out with a ton of anecdotes, on the occasion:

    Russian spies in Sofia reported to Putin that Minister Karakachanov (Bulgarian Minister of War) was not only "debel" (debel = fat), but also de-beat.


    If you feel useless, and your work is meaningless, then you need to find out that there are Russian spies who are monitoring the modernization of the Bulgarian army.


    That's the whole assessment of our population, of these scandals.

Maybe we became very cultured and stopped hanging them, from time to time, so the evolution of the political class stopped ... laughing

But they watched on TV as they were being bombed, and no one could do anything. Here some deliberately, others foolishly translate interstate relations of politicians into interethnic enmity.

      Are there Russian spies in Bulgaria? There are certainly a few that have lit up!
      CIA and NATO filed info? Definitely yes!

              I would not call that any country in the world. But I know one country that has managed to turn 100 degrees in 180 years. 3 times changing his name and social order, and each time totally denying his past! With its shape-shifters, this country attracted many others. In this country, each new leader branded the former as "enemies and traitors." This country changed enemies and friends permanently, but at the same time its inhabitants deny the right of others to act like them.
              By the way, the inhabitants of this country hang out in hundreds of thousands on the beaches of Bulgaria, but do not bother to go a couple of hundred kilometers from hotels to put a flower on the monuments of their ancestors. I suspect this is due to the fact that over time the mental difference between ancestors and heirs has become enormous. The modern ones are in no way similar to their heroic ancestors.

                  The point here is that when one country / BG / does what the other / RF / does, the citizens of the Russian Federation should not blame BG. Otherwise it turns out - "to see a straw in another's eye, to ignore logs in one's own." lol

                      By respectable Russians, I do not mean those who run back and forth with portraits specified by you gentlemen, as well as those who do the same thing but under the portraits of the leader ... Neither one nor the other represent the multi-million people of Russia. By and large, among all peoples, most people are quite adequate.

    Another lie at the request of the FSA State Department in order to provide a justification for the expulsion of Russian diplomats from the country. The aim is to undermine the authority of Russia and to plant the image of the enemy in the Balkan countries in the first place. In the western part of the euro-old woman, this has apparently already been achieved, so it is necessary to once again set the "brothers" against the Russian Federation for the next trip to the east for nishtyaks. wassat
